Governor-elect for Kaduna state, Mallam Nasiru el-Rufai has made it clear that he would not spare those who caused electoral violence in the recently concluded elections in the state.
The governor-elect, who was handed his certificate of return at the INEC headquarters in the state capital along with his deputy, Mr. Bala Bantex, said that there would be no sacred cow in the proposed prosecution of those that were involved in electoral violence, adding that it would serve as deterrent to others and also to reinforce his government’s commitment to the rule of law.
El-Rufai thanked the people of Kaduna State for voting massively for the APC in the election even as he assured them that his government would hit the ground running immediately after their swearing in on May 29 in an effort to rebuild the state.
The Governor-elect explained that his administration would complete all ongoing projects initiated by the outgoing PDP government which has positive impact on the people of the state, while those of less importance would be reviewed.
Among those that attended the event were traditional rulers, civil society organizations, and members of the Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security. [myad]
